BYU team develops traffic safety model

PROVO — For the past six years a team at Brigham Young University has been developing one of the most advanced traffic safety models in the country.
“It was developed specifically for Utah and Utah drivers and we were excited to think that over the long term that this might in a small way contribute to Utah`s goal of zero fatalities,” said Shane Reese, Professor of Statistics BYU.
The system predicts how many crashes are expected on a roadway and compares that to the number of accidents that actually occur there.
